A lot of forms on websites asking for address details have drop-down menus for choosing your country.

Now I know this list is always going to be roughly the same but is it included in web-site creation software or created site by site?

I only ask because Jersey or the Channel Islands is never an option but The Marshal Islands and Cook Island sometimes crop up.

I don't like having to put my address as UK but that's usually my only option.

Even if it's auto-generated by a program like Dreamweaver it is still editable. So they are guilty of blatant anti-Jersey descrimination. :D

It's probably more a matter of what shopping-cart software they are running (although still it would be editable).

Figures, probably the same people who can't be bothered to check their websites work fully in Safari!

I smell a conspiracy! :eek: So I googled "internet explorer" Jersey conspiracy, and I found a page operated by "The Invisible Republic Jersey Webring." Clearly, someone somewhere is trying to hide from something or someone! Something's rotten in the state of Jersey, I tell you! :eek: ;) :D
